Messenger Marketing: Rakuten Viber Messaging Solutions for Businesses and Brands

As the digital landscape continues to evolve, so does marketing. Businesses can no longer rely on traditional marketing techniques to reach their target audience. They must now adapt their marketing strategies to the ever-changing digital world. 

One of the most important (and difficult!) aspects of marketing in the digital age is making sure the brand gets noticed among the growing number of touchpoints and cuts through the content “noise”. As the number of touchpoints increases, and with attention span at an all-time low, it becomes more and more important to adopt a multichannel approach to marketing. There are many ways to interact with customers, but it is important to find the right mix of strategies that work for your business and your target audience.

As a business owner, you know that in today's world, messaging solutions are a vital part of marketing. In a world where instant messaging and social channels are paramount, Rakuten Viber is a powerful tool that companies can use to connect with customers. With users in over 190 countries, Rakuten Viber offers a wide reach, cutting-edge messaging and advertising solutions for brands looking to connect with new and existing audiences. 

Use Rakuten Viber To Tell About Your Brand

It’s a marketing textbook fact that awareness is built through repeated interactions. In 2022, with users spending 85% of their smartphone time in apps (and 77% spending most of this time in just their top three apps, including a messaging app), the messengers’ share of audience attention is so much higher compared to other marketing channels. TV used to be one of the most popular platforms for telling the story about a brand, but many marketers are re-examining their marketing approaches in favor of channels where audiences spend more time, and that are easy to measure.
